Critically acclaimed “The Singing Revolution” shares the story of the thousands upon thousands of Estonians who, between 1987 and 1991, gathered publically to sing forbidden patriotic songs in an expression of their desire for independence from the Soviet Union. The Lexington High School Choral Department is proud to be the first high school to screen this movie. Proceeds from the event will go to support scholarships for their trip to Sweden, Finland, and Estonia.
In addition to the screening the choral groups will sing traditional Estonian songs, a local Estonian dance troupe will perform, and filmmakers James Tusty and Maureen Castle Tusty will be on hand to answer questions.
Ticket Price: $5 for students; $12 for adults; $30 for screening and reception (limited to 50 participants).
